Review of Special Rare Ceylon Leaf Tea Kirkoswald

6 of 102 of 53 of 550 of 100

The tea fell short for me. Aroma was great, but taste was flat. I steeped for 8 minutes to try and bring out full flavor, but no luck. I like a more full bodied tea, and one that I can feel pleasantly leeching into every nook and cranny. This tea didnt do that. Extremely light, and probably low in caffeine content as well. Based on Alex's review, I'll try Ahmad's OPA Ceylon next.

I love Ahmad's Ceylon OPA; their straight loose Ceylon is another of my favorites--and in spite of both being strong, dark black teas, they're completely different from each other. The OPA has chocolate and cocoa tones, and the regular Ceylon has more wintergreen or minty tones. They're both rich but in rather different ways.
